Hair Bow Holder

I decided that with all the hair bows I've been making, I need somewhere to put them all where they are easily accessible, but cute too. I ended up making a bow holder out of a large frame.  It's a great place to clip on all sorts of bows and barrettes and it is SUPER easy to do.

What You'll Need:

22"x 18" piece of thin fabric
3 yrds of 1in ribbon
16"x20" frame
hot glue

  1. Take out the piece of glass or plastic from the frame and lay it on top of the fabric of your choice.
  2. Pull the fabric so that it's taut and glue the edges to the back of the glass/plastic.  Wrap the corners like you would wrap a present and secure with hot glue.
  3. Decide if you are going to hang your frame vertically or horizontally and then cut your ribbon to be slightly longer than the frame.
  4. Hot glue the ends of the ribbon either vertically or diagonally to the back of the glass piece, making sure that the ribbon has no slack in it.
  5. Once the glue is dry, place the glass back into the frame and secure it in place.
  6. Place bows and clips on the frame and hang up!

*I made mine to match my daughter's room so I used a piece of purple fabric with Disney Princess ribbon.  This would be very pretty with a nice looking frame, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I bought a poster frame for about $5 at Walmart.
